Tummy tuck surgery is one of the most effective ways to remove both stubborn deposits of fat and excessive amounts of loose and saggy skin from the midsection. With an abdominoplasty procedure, board-certified St. Louis plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Kofkoff can tone the stomach, trim the waist, and even strengthen the core, helping produce ideal contours and enhance the entire upper body.
If you are considering tummy tuck surgery in St. Louis, O’Fallon, or surrounding areas of Missouri, please contact Richard L. Kofkoff, MD online or call (800) 924-9482 to schedule a consultation at our Chesterfield office.
Tummy Tuck Candidates
You may be an ideal abdominoplasty candidate if you:
- Have struggled to tone your midsection through diet and exercise alone
- Are close to your healthiest BMI
- Do not smoke
- Are in generally good health
- Have realistic goals and expectations
- Are prepared for a surgical procedure and recovery period
There are a number of tummy tuck benefits that can make the procedure suitable even for people without significant amounts of skin or fat around the stomach. These include a tightening of abdominal muscles and a toning of the entire midsection that can improve clothing options, increase self-confidence, and even provide a springboard for more strength, endurance, and physical ability. What you can expect from your procedure will be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation with Dr. Kofkoff.
Type of Abdominoplasty
Dr. Kofkoff offers both full and mini tummy tuck options at our Chesterfield plastic surgery facility. Which of these options is best for your body will be based on factors unique to your anatomy along with your personal goals and desires. During your abdominoplasty consultation, Dr. Kofkoff will listen to your desires, assess your frame, answer your tummy tuck questions, and help you decide which technique will best help you reach your goals.
